Biography | show moreshow less
Lionel Barrymore (1878-1954), born Lionel Blythe, was the older brother of Ethel and John Barrymore. Abandoning his dreams for a career as an artist for acting, Lionel, who became a character actor rather than a leading man like his brother, won the 1930-1931 Academy Award for A Free Soul and was nominated for the 1928-1929 Academy Award for Best Director for Madame X. Despite openly professing a loathing for the acting profession, Barrymore appeared in a number of films, giving acclaimed performances in Peter Ibbetson (1917) and The Copperhead (1920), and winning great popularity as Dr. Gillespie in a number of popular "Dr. Kildare" films (1938-1947). His other film credits include Grand Hotel (1932), David Copperfield (1935), Captains Courageous (1937), It's A Wonderful Life (1946), Duel in the Sun (1946), Key Largo (1948) and Down to the Sea in Ships (1949), and Barrymore was also known for his annual radio appearances as Scrooge in A Christmas Carol.
